Due to the long wait for openings into the Cabrillo Nursing Program in Level 2 (second semester), we are not accepting LVN applications at this time.
LVNs are eligible for second semester entry only. All prerequisites AND general education and nursing specific graduation requirements must be completed before entry in the program.
LVNs currently on the Advanced Placement Wait List will continue to hold their position on the wait list and will be notified by email each fall and spring semester regarding space availability for the semester.
Please check back for updates on when we may be accepting applications again for second semester entry.
If you have any questions, please email Nursing.
Attention Advanced Placement Transfer Applicants:
Transfer students are those who have completed at least 2 semesters in a Associate Degree Nursing Program and who meet the criteria listed below.
Due to the long wait for openings into the Cabrillo Nursing Program in Level 2 (second semester), we are not accepting transfer applications at this time for Level 2. Transfer students seeking Level 3 (3rd semester) or Level 4 (4th semester) entry, prior to requesting an application, are required to contact the Nursing Department to schedule a meeting with the Director of Nursing. The meeting will focus on the student's course sequence and clinical background to determine possible transfer into Level 3 or Level 4. All potential applicants will be asked to bring unofficial transcripts. If it is determined the student may be eligible for a position in either Level 3 or Level 4, then a complete application packet will be required. Application information will be available after the meeting with the director. If you have any questions please email Nursing.
Transfer applicants must also meet the following criteria:
Transfer applicants must demonstrate completion of at least two semesters of medical-surgical fundamentals, pediatrics and obstetrics in order to be eligible to transfer into our program as an advanced placement student.
All general education and nursing specific graduation requirements must be completed before entry in the program. Nursing Program Prerequisites and Graduation Requirements.
Once accepted, students will be placed in a pool of qualified applicants. Placement in a class is based on space availability, application post mark date, and review of transcripts and syllabi of completed course work for transfer applicants.
Positions are made available to Advanced Placement applicants on a space available basis only. It is difficult to predict when or how many positions will be available to Advanced Placement applicants for any given semester.
Advanced Placement LVN and Transfer Students will be eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN) upon successful completion of our program.
